Since we are in Week 1, we are going to spend some time getting to know each other. For this discussion, please answer the following prompts in your video: 

  • Name
  • Location
  • Major
  • Fun fact about yourself

Be sure to provide a video reply to two of your peers' posts

 

Please use the video tips below when posting any videos to Flipgrid for this course:

  • Be mindful of what is in your background.

  • Find a professional background space such as a solid white wall or another light colored wall. It is ok to have professional pictures and items on the wall or shelf in the background.

  • Try to keep yourself centered in the camera frame for the duration of the video.

  • Wear appropriate clothing.

  • Write a script or jot down some initial thoughts and ideas in response to the prompts. Try not to read off your notes but rather glance at them as a guide to ensure you are covering everything.

  • Speak slowly and clearly.

  • Keep the camera steady.

  • Practice twice before actually recording so you are familiar with what you want to say and can make adjustments prior to recording - This saves time in the long run.
     
  • Don't be too critical of yourself. Keep going if you think you messed up.

  • Have fun!
